Quotes are among the most shared online content. Web users share them as text, but a much more preferred form is a text on an image.
And this is where the design can make a huge difference. We’ve seen many beautiful book quotes that were terribly visualized – and still shared.
When I look at the book quotes freshly illustrated by Risa Rodil, I have the feeling that something that’s perfect can be even better. Perfect statements every book lover can identify with have the form everyone can admire.
Risa Rodil is an extremely talented young illustrator and multimedia designer. If you are into quotes (or typography in general), you had to see her unique hand-written designs before.
She has designed alternative covers for Harry Potter books or Hunger Games series, and visualized many quotes from her favorite authors. She has worked for Harper Collins, Penguin Random House, or Macmillan Publishers.
Among the new illustrated book quotes, you’ll find the ones from J.K. Rowling, George R.R. Martin, or Frank Zappa.
But there is more! The timeless, worth repeating, and most adorable call to action – “read more books” – has the new face thanks to Risa Rodil. The same with “just one more chapter,” and “my weekend is all booked.”
The set includes twelve works. You can check them out on Risa Rodil’s website. The visuals are also available on posters, t-shirts, personal accessories, mobile device cases, and other merchandise items. You can get them on Society6, Redbubble, and a few other online stores.
